BBQ Onion Bacon Bombs

BBQ Onion Bacon Bombs

Prepare your heart and tummy for a keto and gluten-free meal that is super filling, greasy, and possibly arty clogging. Hopefully, not the last part but you get my drift. While browsing cooking videos, I came upon this recipe that you can literally add more ingredients too and make it your own.

Delicious and dense as wells as high in protein and fats. Let me break it down.
